RESIDENTS of Alloa's The Orchard Care Home have been treated to a month of festive fun in the lead up to Christmas.

The main event laid on by the home was a concert where everyone could perform a collection of their favourite festive carols to their friends and family members.

One resident, Hugh Mangon, even plucked up the courage to perform a solo of Silent Night which brought tears and laughter to people's eyes.

During the concert another resident was given an award and a bouquet of flowers for her incredible fundraising efforts over recent months.

Alison Fleming raised over £99 for Children in Need, and £95 from Halloween hampers which went towards the home's comfort fund.

The Orchard also held its annual Christmas fayre early in December, which featured a visit from Santa himself, and raised a staggering £635.69.

The Christmas treats are just the latest in a long list of events the care home's residents have enjoyed this past year.

Inhabitants recieved a special visit from two alpacas back in August – and a visit from Tullibody beauty queen Kaitlyn Shields.

They also had the chance to meet a Shetland pony in September, which was brought in by staff from the Devon River Riding Centre in Fishcross.

Fiona Johnstone, manager at The Orchard, said: "The home has been full of laughter and happiness, exactly what we want at this time of the year."
